    This pricker came with an old Radius No.42.

    For stove Nos 25, 42, 100, 100 L and blow lamp 48.

    Note that it has "IMPORT" stamped on both the envelope and the pricker itself. It came from France.


    Cheers

    Hi Tony, great post.
    I see that you have now posted a series of prickers and their packaging. I find the listings of the stoves which these prickers are intended for very useful, and have started to make up a table cross referencing prickers to intended stoves.

    It would be really useful of you could measure the wire diameter on the prickers you post, just to confirm which jet aperture diameter they are intended for. I assume , for example, that these prickers were made for 0.23mm diameter aperture jets.

    Thanks for taking the time to make these posts.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    @kerophile

    Exactly! I'm awaiting my micrometer and when it arrives I will post the diameters.

    I've a few more up my sleeve.

    Cheers

    I think your idea of making a table to cross reference prickers and intended stoves is a good idea.
    I started a similar table about a year and a half ago. I made a basic structure and added some information and then I put it aside and forgot about it until I read your post.

    The posting of more pricker packets will help.

    I have just measured the pricker wire on this pricker as 0.21mm

    Cheers
